Product Description

The three-disc DVD set includes all 22 episodes from the second season, with guest stars Linda Lavin (TV’s Alice), David Doyle (TV’s General Hospital), and Adam Arkin (Hitch). Barney Miller is the kind of cop we'd all like to meet. He somehow manages to maintain order at New York City’s 12th Precinct in Greenwich Village and remains level-headed while dealing with a group of off-the-wall inner-city detectives. Among them is a gambler, another who attends renaissance philosophy conventions for fun, and a third who spends most of his time daydreaming about being an author. This season, the precinct deals with potential layoffs, a man who threatens to blow up the station unless he can speak with President Nixon, marijuana evidence that suspiciously disappears, and a job offer from Florida for Barney.

Changes are in store for the men of the 12th Precinct in the second season of Barney Miller, which is presented in its entirety in this three-disc, no-frills collection. Chief among the wrinkles to the show's proven formula are the departure of Gregory Sierra's Chano Amenguale, who would leave for his own series after this season; also, Barbara Barrie, who made a strong impression as Barney's wife Liz in the first season, would be relegated to the sidelines for much of this episode run before leaving the series, though she does earn her own storyline for the first and only time in "Social Worker." Otherwise, the second season is focused largely on Barney and the rest of the detectives (as most fans preferred) as they wrangle with crazed gunmen ("The Sniper"), a marauding rodent ("You Dirty Rat"), job insecurity ("The Layoff") and a punishing New York city summer ("Heat Wave"). Hal Linden's smart performance as Barney remains the glue that holds the series together, though there is excellent work from Abe Vigoda as Fish and Max Gail as Wojciehowicz, especially in "The Kid" (Fish becomes enamored of a pickpocket's mother) and "Discovery" (Wojo investigates police harassment of a gay couple). Series followers will also note the presence of future cast members Steve Landesburg and Ron Carey among the guest cast; both would join the show (as Detective Arthur Dietrich and Office Carl Levitt) in the third season. Video quality is a little worse for wear in certain episodes; the set also features two superfluous "mini-episodes" of Charlie's Angels and The Facts of Life as its supplemental features. --Paul Gaita

This is about 4 years overdue. I look forward to picking it up, and I hope the next installment doesn't have to wait another 4 years.
The cast is just beginning to settle into their roles, though they are still adding detectives here an there, trying things out.
Season 3 is the golden season. The really hit a groove that year. I am looking forward to seeing some of these episodes though.
Detrich makes his first appearence this season in the episode Fish, about halfway through this season. But it's only one episode. Steve Landsberg also makes an appearence in the first episode of season 2 as Father Paul. His first full season is season 3 when he gets trained by Fish, and is constantly having to move from desk to desk.

BARNEY MILLER: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is a great addition to anyone's DVD collection.
The show ran from 1975 to 1982, but, other than clothing and references to current events of the day, I found myself forgetting that this second season was originally broadcast more than thirty years ago. The jokes are fast and furious and Hal Linden (Barney Miller) and the rest of the cast are wonderful. The episodes run the gambit of scenarios. Everything from retirement to on-the-job romance to gay bashing are dealt with intelligently and humorously. I'm almost certain you'll find yourself watching these episodes again and again. These are hard times and it's important to make time for laughter. Life is too short.

Barney Miller was(along with Hill Street Blues and the first three seasons of MASH) the last prime-time, commercial television show that I actually scheduled into my weekly "To-Do" list, so I greeted with absolute elation the news that somebody had finally made the second season available. I check here almost daily to see if additional seasons have been released (and would appreciate if anybody in the know would let me know if the release of additional seasons are on the way.)
It isn't hard to figure out why Barney M. was, and still is, the high watermark in television comedy: Good writing. The story, the humor was everything. No exotic sets (basically the entire eight seasons are shot in the squad room) no special effects, no sex, no violence. All the money seems to have been spent on writing good scripts. The cast look, talk and act like real, believable people in the real world. (There are actually old people in the cast, women who don't bulge from low-cut blouses and parents that don't look like high school students.) Even more amazing, most of the characters dealt with here are actually non-people like taxi drivers, plumbers, waitresses and street urchins who take a bus to work. Everybody in entertainment today knows that real people are doctors, lawyers, advertising executives, bankers and handsome corporate heads who drive expensive sports cars. Character development is fantastic, and even semi-regulars like Lugar and Skanlon are unique, superbly developed characters..and hilarious.
This show is, above all, a rare adult comedy. I understand it hasn't been released before (aside from the first season) because there didn't seem to be a market for it.

There are several sitcoms from the 70's that have worn well - The Bob Newhart Show, Mary Tyler Moore Show, and this, Barney Miller. The first season, which was just a half season, set the stage for the second season, and the series only got better. A terrific ensemble cast, great stories and very well directed. Linda Lavin's best role was here as Det. Janice Wentworth, definitely NOT Alice. Abe Vigoda as Fish reels off great one-liners. Much was made at the time (I was 15) about the diversity of the group and it genuinely made a difference. Plus you get a better insight to the 70's than just about any show with respect to the issues of the day. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out!!!
